I'm trying to improve my bash experience by adding the usual preferences to the
set completion-ignore-case on set show-all-if-ambiguous on TAB: menu-complete
However, when I put them in my
etc/.inputrc file and restart bash, they don't work. Is
etc/ the proper place for the
.inputrc file? I believe you need to create the file from scratch on a Mac. I couldn't find one so I made it myself. Is there another set command I need to copy/paste into my
.inputrc file to make these other commands work?
Edit: I created a new
.inputrc file in my home directory with the same commands and Bash accepted it. I thought this file needed to be in
/etc. Would love an explanation if anyone has one.
